Experimental research in cross-linguistic psycholinguistics


Sauppe, Sebastian; Andrews, Caroline; Norcliffe, Elisabeth (2023). Experimental research in cross-linguistic psycholinguistics. In: Zufferey, Sandrine; Gygax, Pascal. The Routledge Handbook of Experimental Linguistics. London: Routledge, 156-172.

Abstract

In recent years, the field of psycholinguistics has seen an increased focus on the study of typologically diverse languages. Expanding cross-linguistic coverage is critical to tease apart those aspects of language processing that are general to the architecture of the human language processing system compared to those that are fine-tuned to the properties of the specific language one speaks. In this chapter, we present an overview of research in this area and describe in detail the kinds of experimental methods that are employed, with a particular focus on methods and procedures that have been developed for undertaking research on language processing outside of more familiar lab-based settings.
